If the company is placed into ‘liquidation’, will this affect my credit score or ability to lend in the future?
No, there should be no impact on your credit score and if the matter is ever raised (by a mortgage company, for example) you simply have to point them to the fact that it was a solvent liquidation process used to close down a successful company. Be assured that all major credit agencies and lenders fully recognise this.
When we are appointed as liquidators we must notify Companies House and place an advertisement in the London Gazette. These are public records and will clearly show that the company is in Members’ Voluntary Liquidation (i.e. solvent) and opposed to a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (i.e. insolvent).
